P / Minimal Maximal Records / 2011
VMaasmechelen (Belgium) 1981; the birth of darkwave-industrial band
PORTRAIT BIZARRE . After a year, being influenced by bands such as Joy
Division and The Cure, PB performs as opening act for bands as Luna
Twist, The Scabs, The Neon Judgement and De 2 Belgen. In 1984 they've
already become a regional icon. After the song "Friends Could Be
Friends" was selected by Ludo Camberlin (Anything But Records) for a
spot on the compilation "No Big Business 2", things went fast for the
band .Later that year the first (and only) 12” “Heat Up One Moment” was
released, a 3-track with B-sides “The Invitation” and “Ballad Of The
Grave” which all became classics in the underground-circuit. In 1985,
after several line-up changes, the group split up because of musical
differences. Now, 30 years later, the band is back and after some
rehearsals and a sold out concert in their hometown, Portrait Bizarre
will present their new album “A New Day” at the famous alternative and
independent festival BIMFEST 2011Ö: 01.12.2011
